STEM Books with an Autumn Theme
Shirley at Simply Science starts us out with a review of the recently released picture book Exploring Fall by Terri DeGezelle, part of the controlled vocabulary Exploring the Seasons Series. As usual, Shirley has some great suggestions for activities.
Shirley also suggests another book for younger readers, Count Down to Fall by Fran Hawk and illustrated by Sherry Neidigh. told in rhyme.
My contribution is Awesome Autumn by Bruce Goldstone.
Autumn isn’t just about fall foliage, it is also about getting ready for winter. Jeff at NC Teacher Stuff has Hibernation Station written by Michelle Meadows and illustrated by Kurt Cyrus.
Sue at Archimedes Notebook reminds us about fall migrations with Butterfly Tree by Sandra Markle and illustrated by Leslie Wu. Sue also has a wonderful list of science/nature things to do in fall in her right sidebar.
Pam at Nomad Press is joining this week with Explore Weather and Climate! With 25 Great Projects by Kathleen M. Reilly and illustrated by Bryan Stone, for budding meteorologists and climatologists ages 6-9.
Anastasia has a lovely picture book A Leaf Can Be… by one of her former students, Laura Purdie Salas and illustrated by Violeta Dabija at Booktalking.
Lindsey Carmichael from Sci/Why in Canada has an off-topic post about evolution in digital organisms. Her colleague has a post about getting ready for winter in the far North, Harvest Time in the Forest.
Thank you to everyone who has participated.

I love the autumn theme! These books look like a great introduction to my favorite season. I don’t have a post today because I am out of gas and unfortunately the blogging has to suffer for a day. Thank you, Roberta and Shirley for posting!

I’m sorry to hear you have run out of gas. Hope you get some rest soon!
Thanks for stopping by.
I hope you don’t mind, I picked up one of your older posts to include.

Thanks, Pam. Your title will fit in well with fall seasons and weather units.
